Still feels weird to celebrate Thanksgiving so late, however, it's another chance to have a feast, so why do I complain? We were lucky to have Mike's brother and wife visit us for a week... yes, a whole week! I can't imagine how quiet & peaceful their home must have felt when they got home... It was special to have them! Ken & Alice and Jean also shared in on our Thanksgiving feast with us, was a good day, and the girls won the Cranium game!! :)

LeAnn & I made namecards for everyone... here are a couple... :)

and the table is prepared... (forgot to take one with the people, guess I was busy?)
Alice always a good sport to read to the kids
Jean being shown the gingerbread house
Alice & Kate sharing a giggle
Ken is good for a story or two :)
Richard & Nancy invited us all over for dinner at their place... a delicious meal again!
a feast is spread
LeAnn & I went into Bella's school to prepare the Thanksgiving feast for the Kindergarten class... it was very fun... the kids helped out with everything from peeling apples & veggies, to making cornbread muffins, and cutting up fruit for a enormous fruit salad!
